    "All streaming. No hassle." - ???

    Sounds like you need a Mac Mini. The Apple TV will not do all of those things. If it did they would sell a billion of them for 99 smackers!

    It can stream music and video from your iTunes library. That's really all it's intended to do.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    A video cable to connect the two of them together.
    Can be done for anywhere between $10-$30 (typically) depending on which Mac you have and the TV you have.

    Have a look here.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    AppleTV (the new one as well as the old one) can also "stream" photos. Just sayin'.
